Mid-19th-Century Coastal Scene

DESCRIPTION

A beautiful oil on board depicting a varied selection of sailing vessels, a fortified building and a distant lighthouse.

It’s interesting to note that the artist has chosen to include several sailboats, a full-rigged ship, and two paddle steamers, as this indicates the ever-evolving appearance of Britain’s seas during the mid-19th-century.

In 1839, JMW Turner painted his insightful work ‘The Fighting Temeraire’, which many view as symbolising the end of an era. A powerful little steam tug is pulling a celebrated gunship that appears as a ghostly relic of its illustrious past.

Although not quite a Turner, this attractive little seascape certainly tells its own story.

A supplier’s label on the reverse dates the painting to between 1850 and 1882.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
